They literally just arrived and I unpacked them.

I can tell you right now, the stiction that was felt before I sent them was pretty bad. These don't have ANY, zero.

I really love that the bottom adjuster has a rubber cap on it so it stays clean, nice touch.

I am sure they are great, but way to costly for me.

I guess it's all in what's important to you. Suspension is one of those things I refuse to ride around anymore. I've had too many clapped out POS'es that ended up crashing me on my head because of ill handling.

Yeppers. I will go the ghetto way, as 2K is a bit high. Not arguing the surely fantastic product, and It is important to me. But out of my price level....as other options are avail for less.

NICE!!!

Alex is currently Shivering the front forks on my 2011 F800GS and supplying me a a new rear shock. So far he has been awesome and I'm talking to him about upgrading the suspension on my other bike.

Do you know what he used to upgrade them? How long did it take? I will be doing this very soon.

I put a few miles on them today, crap weather around here lately. The front definitely feels more plush and not as vague as before, I can actually tell what the front end is doing. Hit a few holes and such, the front soaks it up nicely. Unfortunately the stock rear shock makes the bike completely unbalanced.

Got the Wilbers this evening and just finished installing.

Got out a bit today, did a little track that's in the field behind us. has a little jump, a couple G out's and some small whoops.

Smooth as freaking butter man. I mean, it's still a big bike, but it was so nice and smooth over everything, landing onto flat was no problem. G out's no issue and the 50 yards of small whoops (probably 8" deep) was nothing.

I'm 100% sold. Honestly, it feels like 50 pounds or so was taken off the bike.
